Abnormal bleeding after menopause is the main symptom of uterine cancer, which occurs in one-third of cases. LiveStrong.com reported the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center attributes vaginal bleeding after menopause to be uterine cancer until proven otherwise.

For women who experience possible symptoms like irregular or painful periods, pain during intercourse or feelings of fullness or pressure in the lower abdomen, visit your healthcare provider to determine the nature of the problems.

My sister was diagnosed with an uterine fibroids 6.7 Cms of size and she was in much pain. The doctors advised her to have surgery but it is something that she was not in favour of and she cannot afford the costs. However, this natural remedy
( http://the-natural-way.info/shrink-fibroids-naturally.php ) was of big help to us and her pain has reduced very much after a week.
